The first of the Rabbit series I read. The voice of Skeeter is one-of-a-kind. Updike becae one of my favorites.

Updike's second novel in his Rabbit sequence is also one of his darkest, most vitriolic and most problematic book. While Rabbit functions as a kind of everyman, you wonder if an everyman character is supposed to be both so unlikable and so unsympathetic. There is a long part of the book in which he debates with a black radical and while Updike is addressing what were serious issues in the late 60s, I felt uncomfortable with him trying to give voice to black concerns, politics and culture.
